When the Internet fails on you – IFTTT.com failure

My entire automatic posting on ITSecurityNews.info which is retweeted on @ITSecurityNews, @SorinMustaca and @sorinm_security is built on IFTTT.com.

Well, this is why you didn’t get some tweets on time:

Last night at approximately 10:00pm PST much of the work IFTTT does in the background stopped due to an issue with one of our backend services. Our monitoring systems would have alerted us to the problem immediately, but those unfortunately failed as well and we weren’t able to fix the issue until this morning at 10:00am PST.

This is what I received from CEO of IFTTT, Linden Tibbets, a few moments ago.

I see that now the posts are starting to come slowly, but I guess I missed a few hundred posts. Let’s see if they come back.

 

Does anyone know any good tool to repost in WordPress complete articles from an RSS feed?
